Guo Chunsheng Tortured in Prison; His Elderly Mother in a Precarious State
(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Guo Chunsheng, in his 30s, is from Zhangshuxia Village, Wuxue City. He started practicing Falun Gong prior to July 20, 1999, when the Chinese Communist Party started persecuting Falun Gong. He owned a small repair shop and mainly repaired electrical equipment.
Police officers arrested Mr. Guo several months before the 2008 Olympics without an arrest warrant. They illegally detained him in the Wuxue City Detention Center and the First Detention Center.
In the first half of 2009, Mr. Guo was sentenced to a three-year prison term without court proceedings, to be served in Fanjiatai Prison of Shayang City. He suffered a mental collapse due to torture and is in very poor health.
The police claimed that he was a mental patient and locked him up in an iron cage. Prison medical personnel went to his home to take photos and told his family that he was seriously ill and needed an operation.
Guo Chunsheng's wife was forced to leave home and seek refuge with relatives and friends. Their child and his 85-year-old sick mother are alone at home without any source of income.
